USA: The natural gas Honda Civic has been replaced by the Mitsubishi i-MIEV as the greenest car in America.

Mitsubishi’s new electric vehicle, the i-MIEV, has done the unthinkable: It has taken over the title of “greenest car in the U.S.” from the natural gas-powered Honda Civic. Mitsubishi EV vehicle becomes the first electric vehicle to take the top spot in 12 years; beating out the CNG-powered Civic, which had controlled the top spot for eight straight years. The Civic fell to second place, tying with the Nissan Leaf EV.

The official list was just unveiled at courtesy of the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE), a Washington-based environmental lobbying group. Now in its 14th year, the annual list compiles a list of the 12 “Greenest” vehicles in America based on several factors. A vehicle’s “Green Score” consists of single measure that encompasses fuel consumption, unhealthy tailpipe emissions, and emissions of gases contributing to climate change. This year’s data included changes to reflect new natural gas extraction practices as detailed in ACEEE’s Green Book.
